Pahola Crowley is a Costa Rican vocalist and composer who has been in the music business for years, performing in clubs, theatres and festivals in Spain and throughout Latin America. She possesses a prodigal vocal technique, making her tremendously versatile and spectacular to watch. At the same time, she has a special capability of communicating and stirring emotions through her music in a very personal and direct manner.
Her third album, Sed de vida, edited by Youkali Music this year and recorded alongside some of Spain’s finest musicians, offers the listener a musical journey from the Latin sounds of her home country to the deep and visceral sounds of jazz and soul music. It is a special fusion which is unique, elegant and heartfelt. She uses her technical prowess in a musical and expressive way, creating a music which is hard to classify, yet is exciting and emotional, musically complex, yet at the same time surprisingly simple, intuitive and spontaneous. A music which strives to capture the insatiable desire to live, love, create and feel, which resides in us all and could be described as our Sed de vida (Thirst for life).
